So Sam has had some bumps on his ear that are causing him pain.
I thought Oh deer, they are ticks!! So I took a matchstick and placed it on him (well, what I thought to be the scoundrel), he is black so my site of color is off. It wasn't a tick. They are scabs roughly the size of the font on my computer. So O...like that big. Some smaller. There is seven in all. So..I took some Alcohol on a Q-tip swab and washed it up a bit, and under the scabs there are these bumps..that are white and seem like zits, but you can't push any puss out and it's painful to touch.
Threw him in the bash washed him down and gave the ol' look over and they are no where else, and only on the one ear. I have an appointment set for Friday. Hoping it's not Cancer or anything! I will try and get a photo uploaded as soon I can get myself bathed...
They look like small sebaceous cysts. My dogs have them on their ears too.
